Criterion Collection on Hulu Opens Up 800+ Classic Films for Free This Weekend

By: Josh Wolford - February 14, 2013

If you’re a film lover and want to spend the weekend holed up watching the best of Jean-Luc Godard, Ingmar Bergman, Francois Truffaut, Kurosawa, Chaplin, and more – Criterion and Hulu have an offer for you.

Starting today and continuing through the weekend, all Criterion films on Hulu will be free to all – even those who are not subscribed to Hulu Plus.

Normally, Criterion films are only able to be streamed by Hulu Plus members. In that case, they’re ad-free. In this free-stream weekend, you’ll have to put up with a few ads throughout the film. But it’s a fairly small price to pay to have access to nearly a thousand classic films.

The Criterion Collection first appeared on Hulu back in February 2011. As of today, there are over 800 different films to stream from Criterion on Hulu, making it one of the most-impressive collection of classic and often hard-to-find films around.
